Since its inception in 2008, Outside Lands has been a disruptor of the live music landscape, rapidly evolving in less than a decade into one of the most influential and successful music and cultural festivals in the world. A true wonderland in one of America's most treasured city parks, Outside Lands is the crown jewel of San Francisco.
Setting the Bar for Every Other Festival
Since Superfly co-founded the event in 2008, Outside Lands remains incomparable to any other city festival for its exciting musical eclecticism, environmental stewardship, groundbreaking technology partnerships, and focus on highlighting local chefs, wineries, brewers, artists, and entrepreneurs. In celebrating Bay Area culture, Outside Lands also showcases the funny, the eccentric and the weirdest comedy and sketch performances at The Barbary tent, a nostalgic throwback to variety entertainment.
THE MOST DELICIOUS EVENT
From the beginning, Outside Lands has been defined as much by its diverse and exciting music lineups as its food and beverage programming. Outside Lands was the first music festival to feature all San Francisco-based food and drinks in its concessions including more than 70 restaurants, 35 wineries, 20 breweries, and 10 cocktail bars - all from California.
GROUNDBREAKING TECHNOLOGY PARTNERSHIPS
Live webcasts, wearable tech, digital wallets, social check-in"s, Outside Lands has been the place where these innovations have launched. The first-ever live festival webcast on YouTube - we did it. Cashless payments with PayPal - that was us too. From Twitter to Facebook, Microsoft to Apple, Outside Lands is the perfect place to experiment, launch, and interact with 200,000 of the young and tech-saaviest.Visit the Site
GASTROMAGIC: NOT YO MOMMA'S TASTING TABLE
How could we further improve the music festival that revolutionized food and drink concessions? By building a stage where we smashed it all together into one magically strange wonder. GastroMagic brought bartenders, comedians, DJ's, butchers, performers, and magicians together for sets all weekend such as "Beignets & Bounce Brunch", "Duck Sauce Soirée", "Breakdown Breakdance", and "BBQ & Drank featuring Lewis Black".
AN INTERNATIONAL EVENT WITH A LOCAL FOCUS
Outside Lands generates over $60 million annually in the local economy and has donated $4 million to the Recreation and Parks Department. Now entering its eighth year, Superfly and its partners were overwhelmingly approved by the city of San Francisco to continue producing Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park through 2020.
